No more home help for €19 per month

No more home help for €19 per month

Eliminating the subscription rate of €19 per month for domestic help will generate €1.5 million per year from 2027. So far, these costs have been paid by the municipality of Alphen aan den Rijn. The WMO Home Assistance Scheme will be income-linked.

One measure to balance Alvin’s budget is to eliminate the contribution rate for domestic help through the World Meteorological Organization. Income assistance has been discussed since the end of 2021. At the time, then councilor Han de Jager said: “There are many residents who are now using the WMO scheme, and who can pay for their household assistance well from their income.”

In 2020, a year after the contribution rate was introduced, the municipality paid €7.3 million in home services to residents. This represents an increase of 30 percent compared to the previous year. This increase can be attributed to middle-income people who previously paid for home help themselves.

The measure to replace the contribution rate with income-related rates will generate approximately 600,000 euros in 2026. The tax cut will be 1.5 million per year in 2027 and 2028.

Abolishing the subscription rate for the WMO Domestic Help Scheme is the plan of the mayor and local councillors. All proposed measures must be approved by the Alfen Municipal Council at its meeting scheduled for July 4.
